Canon Yaounde have won their first MTN Elite One championship game in the past six outing, following their 3-0 win against struggling Aigle Royal of Menoua this Sunday in match day eight of the MTN Elite One championship.
Winlees in seven games, Aigle Royal of Menoua were even more vulnerable before kick-off given that their first choice keeper Serge Diguel and main forward Amine Hiver were all away with the national team.
Coach Atangana Joseph displayed a very attacking Canon side and they took the game to Olivier Nankam’s men from the beginning.
Lama Lawane denied Canon the lead with a great save in the opening moments of the game, but Alfred Meyong, Ngong Neville and co had planned to give him a busy day in goal.
Meyong’s constant movement down the attacking channel kept the Aigle Royal defenders on their toes as they tried to keep out Canon.
It was just a matter of time as cometh the 30th minute, Meyong break into space before delivering an inch-perfect ball for Herman Tchakounte to put the Kpakum ahead.
Canon took the slim lead to the dressing room but came for more after the pause.
Even with a chance to hit the target, Ngong put the ball on the plate for Thogane Essiane to double the advantage.
Aigle rang the changes in a bit to find their way back into the contest, unfortunately for them Canon instead got better.
Brandon Djoufack helped squash all hopes of a comeback when he combined with Priso Eyango to connect with Thogane for his second of the great afternoon at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Omnisport stadium.
Canon played with style and purposes through the closing moments of the game to record their first win in five weeks.
The result leaves Aigle Royal of Menoua winless in eight outings this campaign and rock bottom of Pool B with three points while Canon moves back into the title playoffs positions with 12 points so far.
Canon face struggling AS Fortuna of Mfou in match day nine while Aigle Royal have the little Colombe equation to sort a week after the Southerners put five past Bamboutos FC.
